Personally, I don't really like describing powerful women as 'bitches'. I know many powerful women do so because they feel like when they use the word to refer to themselves they are in some way reclaiming the word and turning a pejorative term into a powerful one, but I honestly believe it just encourages use of the word in a derogatory way. Despite that, Tina Fey is a superb role model for young women and for that reason, I'll let her get away with it, just this once! What's your opinion on using the word 'bitch' to describe powerful or high-acheiving women? Do you think women will ever successfully reclaim the word?
BITCH : being in total control (of) herself
